himself. and there is an old expression that russia without the ukraine is a country and russia with the ukraine is an empire. i do believe putin understands that. but the most important part for him is military and strategic and economic impact is the crimean peninsula. so i think that's why you see such an aggressive forceful attempt now to at least build the case for the crimea to allow them to go into the russian federation. >> go into the federation? >> we had an interesting thing happen. the upper chamber in moscow laid out a bill that would allow them to take any part of -- their portion of any port of tart of 00 cra ukraine into russia. i think clearly they want the crimea.ou ukraine into russia. i think clearly they want the crimea.u ukraine into russia. i think clearly they want the crimea. ukraine into russia. i think clearly they want the crimea.ukraine into russia. i think clearly they want the crimea. >> so annexation? >> so i think they phrased it they would take them. so not a direct annexation. it would be the crimea saying they want to come into russia and they
